Poetry is a Waste of Time, a poem (believe it or not)

Poetry has become

the cliche of all cliches.

For most “poets”

writing has become an act

of masturbation,

a way to kill some time.

Anyone who dares

to ramble about

stupid shit

like love or hope

get’s thrown into the lion’s den.

Anyone who appreciates

the beauty of a river’s flow

or the symphonies

of chirping birds

is just full of shit.

Everyone “wanders

lonely like a cloud,”

So why the fuck

would you write about it.

It’s a waste of time

to spooge this onto


after page.

But I can’t stop.

And I never will.
